Rummaging through 'intheBOX'

Rummaging through this month's box from intheBOX - a quarterly wellness subscription box and it never fails to disappoint me. You will expect most subscription boxes to throw in only sample packs for you to try, but it's different with intheBOX. This quarter's box was filled with a handful of full sized items to try and that excites me. All of the items in the box are usually made with natural and organic ingredients - worth your every penny :)

The first item I took out was this body lotion from africa organics. It's a little sweet smelling, however, it's not overpowering. I love how it's vegan too! It's also convenient to bring around, and it'll definitely be in my bag wherever I go because I have really really dry hands.

Coconut oil from island of coconuts. Did you know, other than using coconut oil for cooking, you can use it on your face, body and hair too? I heard it acts as a really good moisturizer + hair treatment oil. I have yet to try it, but I do love the fragrant smell of coconut oil when I cook. It's much healthier than using regular canola/olive oil as well!

A pure olive oil soap bar from so true naturals. This kept my box smelling really fresh! I find that it smells similar to those soap bars you get in your hotel bathrooms hehe, or maybe it's just me. It's only made from one ingredient, so you don't have to worry about any sulphates and other chemicals being put onto your body.

Other bathroom necessities include this colour conserve shampoo by AVEDA. I don't have coloured hair, so I am giving this to my mum. From their site, it claims to be made with 100% organic aroma, definitely keeping your coloured mane shiny.

Other items include these tea packs from honey spree. Different tea packs have different functions - I received one which aids in tummy aches and the other, for easy digestion. Since I don't take honey, I'm giving this too, to my mum who often have tummy aches. Perfect :)

This body polish by Bali Mama smells of real frangipani flowers and it’s suuuuper creamy (you can tell from the picture below) But it also acts a bit like an exfoliating lotion or body butter.

You will also get different coupons and discount vouchers from various brands. Isn't it amazing how everything can fit into ONE box?!? If you are interested to get one yourself, head on over to intheBOX to subscribe today!

'To Drink'

1. Black Soy Milk - Unisoy 2. Organic Blue Pea Cider - Organi 3. Peruvian Mint Tea - Namasteas 4. Discount Voucher for Joogo Juice cleanse

If you like soy milk, you will like this black soy milk from Unisoy. It does not have a distinct taste, but do stir it well! My mum loves this too :) I am excited to try Namasteas's mint tea. I am a huge tea lover!


'To Eat'

5. Coconut Palm Sugar - Big Tree Farms 6. Deep Pink Himalayan Salt - Stephen James

Did you know, you are able to use both of these ingredients if you intend to bake something healthy? As coconut palm sugar is a natural sweetener derived from the coconut palm tree, it is a great alternative to refined sugars. The deep pink Himalayan salt is also one of the healthiest salt available in the market.

7. Multi Strap - MADANA 8. Mojito cooling shower gel - Nicole's natural 9. Natural Lipbalm - Anahata Living 10. Soy wax candle - BsaB

So, in this category, you are able to find items that you can use to supplement your lifestyle. For any yogis and runners out there, you would be pleased to know that you will receive a multi strap by MADANA. It can help you with your stretches, poses and also, carry your mat around ;) I am in LOVE with the soy wax candle! It already smells so great even before lighting it up!


Among all these goodies, you will also find many other vouchers and gift coupons that you are able to use.

November's intheBOX

Christmas is round the corner and if you haven't found the perfect gift for your loved ones, stop searching - November's intheBOX is the perfect gift! With everything from food, lifestyle, cosmetics and personal care, intheBOX has got you covered. Not forgetting, this quarter's BOX smelled super good so you'll definitely know there's something awesome in there ;) OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Each quarter, you will receive 8 different brands, each with a different category including the ones mentioned above. I have already given a brief introduction of intheBOX before here: so i shall not repeat myself :) Read below to find out what's included in this quarter's BOX...


The first item that greeted me was a vegan chocolate chip cookie by Lenny and Larry's. Since it's vegan it does not contain and dairy (perfect for me) or eggs. Can't wait to bite into it! Based on their website, there are other flavours too including pumpkin, peanut butter, double chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin.


I have always been a tea over coffee person and definitely a green tea lover. This is an ideal tea to accompany any meal - Simply brew this tea at about 65-70°C for 50 seconds during the first infusion. The second and third infusion can be done at 15 and 30 seconds respectively.


This is a shower gel and lotion pack from COMO. Definitely smells great! Can't wait to slab on that lotion on my super duper dry skin *yikes*


Have you heard of a mouldable aromatherapy dough? Well neither have i till i saw this by Sunyata. They are developed by cleverly harnessing the benefits of Touch therapy, Colour therapy and Aromatherapy to create a versatile well-being product that works. There are 9 different scents and mine is calm. Comes in handy especially when i'll be swamped with my final year project next month onwards...


A heat balm made locally here in Singapore by Theo 10. It's 100% natural and it helps with people who are suffering from eczema. It can also be used on insect bites and minor burns. It smells spicy like how a heat balm would smell. I have used this on the mozzie bites i got (it's crazy i have around 6 bites on my leg - am i too sweet?) and it really prevented me from scratching them like crazy.


This soy wax melt by Artisan's Garden is the sole reason why your box is smelling so fine. If they are still in their solid form and they are already smelling so great, can you imagine if you melt them? I'm not even exaggerating this.


I have never heard of moringa powder but i am quite excited to add this into my green smoothies! According to analysis, the powdered leaves of moringa tree contain 46 types of antioxidants. One serving, in fact, contains 22 percent of our recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C, and a whopping 272 percent of our RDI of vitamin A. Regularly consuming moringa leaves has also been linked to lower blood pressure, improved digestion and mood, immune-boosting effects, lower fat and calorie levels and aids in weight loss.

Moringa powder can be added to smoothies, curries, sauces or consumed directly in a glass of water or by making a tea. It does have a leafy spinach like taste when eaten raw. The leafy taste reduces when cooked.



The last item in my box is this silver heart tin from Makeroom. It has that rustic feel to it and i love it! I'm going to store my accessories in it or find a way to make this as a pretty display.

It's amusing how all these products are able to fit so well into this box! Was so excited when i unbox-ed it!

1. BRUNEUS Raw Nut Clusters

"We get most of our organically grown ingredients from sustainable sources in South East Asia. We work directly with cacao and coconut palm farmers in Bali, Indonesia. All our ingredients are traded at above fair trade price to cultivate a better livelihood and sustainable farming"

Yes! It's BRUNEUS! I am really loving their cacao nibs at the moment and i'll honestly be so upset once it's gone :P This packet is one of their raw nut clusters that i've yet to try. Great for a snack too, don't you think? ;)

2. Infuusa Tea

Infuusa - a cold brew tea that has no sugar added and made with only natural ingredients! This tea is also caffeine free thus it is also perfect for a post-workout drink :) Bring this to the gym instead of a sports drink (which is loaded with sugar). Just pop a sachet into your water bottle, add water, shake and drink in minutes. Super convenient, portable and easy to make!



3. nicole's mojito cooling showel gel

"Nicole’s is a range of luxury natural products for bath, body and home. Nicole’s uses only the best sourced natural organic ingredients and essential oils to achieve premium results. Using antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, marine and bioactive extracts, that god had created for us, to achieve a truly effective natural range that makes a difference.

All products from nicole's are made with no harsh preservatives, no paraben, no artificial fragrance and no coloring. Are you amazed right now? Cause i am.... They also have a wide product range including shower gel, gel scrub, bath salt, bubble bath, tub tea, bar soap, hand soap, hydrating gel, pure essential oil blend, essential oil blend, and tea [drinks].



4. 100% Pure

5. Viva La Papa

"We make delicious potato chips, cooked in small batches by hand using potatoes and complimentary flavours from the birthplace of the potato - peru. Viva La Papa!"

Who doesn't love snacking on chips? Ever since i've started eating clean, i haven't been touching those regular potato chips you see on the shelves in your local grocery store. *pats back* And now, take a look at this! Sweet potato chips???



6. Rooted BEAUTY Lip Butter

7. Pure&Sure Coconut Oil

I love coconut oil! I use them when i bake and cook and i'm sure anyone who receives this would be delighted as well!

Did you know that coconut oil helps kill bacteria that cause ulcers, throat infections, urinary tract infections, gum diseases and other bacterial infections? It contains antimicrobial properties so it effectively prevents the spread of cancer cells and enhances the immune system. It also helps kill fungi and yeast that lead to infections.

Coconut oil is natural nutrition for hair. It helps in the healthy growth of hair, providing a lovely sheen. Regular massage of the scalp with coconut oil ensures that your scalp is free of dandruff. Coconut oil is also an excellent massage oil for the skin as well. It acts as an effective moisturiser on all types of skin including dry skin.

So many health benefits from coconut oil!
